Trade In and Store Credit Policies
Your store credit can be applied towards USED, in-stock merchandise and will only apply towards half of the price of a used item. The other half must be paid for with regular payment (cash, check, or credit card). For example: if you are buying $10 worth of used books, you can use $5 in store credit. This policy ensures that we have money coming in with each sale, which is necessary if we want to be able to pay the bills. Your store credit has no expiration date. We make only 1 copy of your store credit and give you the option of taking that copy to keep track of yourself, or leaving it on file with us.
Because of the high volume of trades and donations that we receive, we are only able to give a small amount of credit per book. We generally give $.50 for mass market paperbacks and $1.00 for trade paperbacks and most hardcovers. Children’s books range from $.25 to $1.00 depending on the size and the demand. For audiobooks on CD, we will usually give 25% of what we will sell them for. These amounts are subject to changes based on individual circumstances.
It’s hard to say exactly what kind of books we are accepting at any given time, but there are a few kinds that we do not accept. Please don’t bring us:
encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest Condensed, National Geographic Magazines, anything that is water damaged, torn, moldy, or stinky.
Don’t hesitate to contact us via e-mail if you have any questions about bringing us books.
